Bills lose practice squader

Posted by Chris Brown on December 13, 2011 – 12:12 pm

The Bills lost a practice squad safety today (Tuesday) to the Dallas Cowboys.

Losing safety Barry Church to a season-ending shoulder injury, the Cowboys signed S Mana Silva off the Bills practice squad. Silva was only on the Bills eight-man practice unit for a month after signing with Buffalo on Nov. 10th.

The Cowboys also signed a former Bills running back in veteran Sammy Morris, a former fifth-round pick of the Bills in 2000. He replaced Dallas’ DeMarco Murray who went on injured reserve with a broken ankle suffered Sunday night.

The Bills now have a vacant spot on their practice squad.

Sammy Morris testing his knee

Posted by Chris Brown on November 9, 2008 – 3:20 pm

Patriots RB Sammy Morris is out on the field here at Gillette Stadium testing his ailing left knee. He’s got a knee brace on and is jogging and trying to cut off the knee. He’s working with two Patriots trainers.

Morris is doubtful after not practicing at all this week. He’s not going to play today. The workout was done to assess his progress and see how likely he is to play this coming Thursday as the Patriots have a short week before they host the Jets on Thursday night.

Patriots injury update

Posted by Chris Brown on November 5, 2008 – 9:37 pm

Not practicing for the Patriots on Wednesday was RB Sammy Morris (knee), CB Lewis Sanders (hamstring) and CB Terrence Wheatley (wrist).

Limited in practice are LB Eric Alexander (hamstring), CB Ellis Hobbs (shoulder), RB LaMont Jordan (calf), WR Randy Moss (foot), WR Matthew Slater (ankle) and NT Vince Wilfork (toe).

With all the nicked up cornerbacks on the roster, the Pats re-signed CB Jason Webster, who they had originally signed in the offseason. They put rookie LB Shawn Crable on I-R to make room for the former Bills defensive back, that was injured in Week 1 of the 2007 season and put on I-R.
